ARCHAELOGICAL AND HISTORIAL SIGHTS WILL CAPTIVATE YOU DURING YOUR CRUISE HOLIDAY IN SIRACUSA.
Siracusa is known for the archaeological and historical sights that define its grand past as one of the major powers of the Mediterranean world in the 5th century BC. They include a Greek theatre, still in use, where Aeschylus produced some of his plays; a dramatic necropolis with burial niches cut into the rock that include the tomb of Archimedes, famous mathematician, engineer, and inventor; and the Ear of Dionysus, a cave with amazing acoustic properties. The “modern” city was rebuilt in Sicilian Baroque style after the devastating earthquake of 1693.Download An Explorer Guide +
